Review for zbox nano fanless mini pc intel

Price was $139.99 - $736.00. First, i'd like to say if you're considering purchasing this via online store warehouse deals, please reconsider. I attempted to purchase the ci325 twice and the ci327 once before finally settling on purchasing the ci327 new. The first ci325 didn't boot. The second one was missing the power supply. The first ci327 (the awd one not the new one) had the wrong power supply and was missing the wireless network card. When i got the new one however it had all the pieces and just worked. . Now that i've got that out of the way, i've been running mine for a few days now to attempt a "burn-in" and have the following observations. The machine is small, power efficient, and running at 100% cpu on all 4 cores the temperature is stable around 61 degrees centigrade (more on this below). The unit takes 2 ddr3 sodimms, i've only tested 4gb so far and the box claims support for 8gb, but i've heard that it can hold up to 16gb. There is one sata port for a 2. 5 inch hdd that's easily accessible, and it comes with an intel 3165 m. 2 wifi card. . So naturally after it passed all the tests i threw at it, the first thing i did was remove the "warranty void if removed" sticker to find the rumored hidden m. 2 sata on the underside of the board. Note that per the ftc, the warranty is not in fact void if you remove said sticker. When you remove the board from the case you can access the underside of the board which supports what appears to be an m. 2 sata 2260 or 2242 slot (i couldn't test my 2280 ssd on it sadly since it was too long). Disappointed, i cleaned off the old thermal compound (since you have to remove the heatsink to get the board out) and replaced it with some arctic silver. I don't know if this helped with the temperature as i've heard people say this machine can get quite hot but with proper ventilation i never saw the temp go above 61c even at 100% load on 4 cores for 24 hours. . All in all i recommend this little box. I'm going to use mine for an openwrt based router for my home. I would like it to have intel nics instead of realtek ones, but that's less of an issue for linux than bsd (pfsense) from what i hear. It would have also been nice for the m. 2 slot to be easier to access, and for it to support 2280, but worst case i can get an adapter for a few dollars to put a 2280 into the 2. 5 slot on the top of the case (and not have to take the darn thing apart and replace the thermal compound).

Introduction

I purchased this with the intent of making it my firewall. I have installed the free sophos xg firewall and it runs great. Any other firewall like ipfire or pfsense will work great on this little box. With almost all the features turned on i can get 175 mbps download speed, super fast. Its a quick little box, it runs ubuntu great too. The one problem is the bios, it's not that great and takes some tuning before getting a thumb drive to boot. All and all i would recommend this if you are looking for a small linux box or to run a firewall.

I have the ci323 nano barebones model with the n3150 cpu. I added a hitachi 1tb 2. 5" 5400 rpm drive for storage and a mydigitalssd m. 2 2242 64gb ssd. . It's a well made unit. Overall the performance is good for the power consumption, which is between 8 and 15w from the wall depending on whether it's idling or playing a game. Plays old games just fine. Works great for office and web browsing use. Completely silent with no audible electrical noise that i can hear. Temps range between 30-60deg. I have never seen it go over 62deg celsius even after sustained gaming or heavy cpu usage. . It has dual sodimms but doesn't seem to operate in dual channel mode, according to cpu-z at least, which is a shame. Maybe a bios update can fix this? . . The barebones unit also has an empty m. 2 2242/2260 slot which is not listed in the specs, probably because you have to remove the motherboard and work around the "warranty void if removed" sticker to remove a screw which is blocked by it. I put an ssd in anyway and it works great. Why they didn't put this on the other side is beyond me. -Y. Eleanor

Just bought a second ci323. The first is running latest version of pfsense on my home network. 1 week later, the network connection is solid and transmit & receive is excellent in my home. The ci323 running pfsense serves my tivo, appletv, roku, plex server for local and remote viewing & public ssh server, dhcp and subsonic music server, very very well. . I've read pfsense users experiencing network "watchdog" timeouts with bsd realtek drivers, within a couple of days of use. After one week and literally using all the aforementioned devices, i haven't had a single problem. Maybe its a unique use case or a random error condition. Not sure, but like i said, its under heavy load from a home network perspective & working for me. . This second is a windows 10 build, for a friend of mine. Both are installed with 8gb crucial sodimm (2 x 4gb) and a 120 gb sandisk ssd. Once windows 10 is installed and has been updated, it will appear that windows 10 detected devices and installed drivers for the zbox, but i always get the required drivers from the manufacturers website, regardless of how much i like and trust a product. . Also, be patient with windows 10. The windows update process takes a long time, and is incredibly annoying on just about any home pc system. When its all said and finally done, windows 10 runs smooth. . Edit . . I had mentioned that i bought one of these for a pfsense firewall. Shortly after adding my review, pfsense logs started showing watchdog timeouts against the realtek adapters. Caused some weird plex and netflix issues on my home network. Dropped / corrupted packets. Its still a great pc for windows 10 as far as i can tell, but not pfsense friendly as others have mentioned, there are workarounds, like recompiling the relatek driver in a bsd environment then uploading the relatek module to pefsense. But not going to bother. Don't have the time for that anymore. Probably going to return it and look for another system with intel lan.

Crucial 4GB Single DDR3/DDR3L 1600 MT/s PC3-12800 Unbuffered SODIMM 204-Pin Memory - CT51264BF160BJ

I have now purchased 14 of these sticks of ram for the intel i5 and i3 nuc computers and they have worked flawlessly in them. I purchased some corsair vengeance memory before and it worked in one of my i5 nucs fine but not in the i3 systems at all. I then moved to this memory and it has not given me any issues. . I have used this with the bios that they shipped with over the last several months and i just updated four of the nucs to the newest bios and they still work fine, i have not adjusted the timings or anything, these are just plug and play for me and my uses. I am using two per nuc, so one in each slot, and no issues at all.

Crucial 1600mhz Pc3 12800 Ddr3l Sdram Ct51264bf160bj (Ram Memory) FAQ.

I have always been a huge fan of crucial memory. Crucial is my go to company when i need to guarantee longevity for my clients computers. Memory was delivered exactly as promised, and on time. Upon receipt, memory was tested with ramcheck lx to make sure all speeds and stats were accurate, and as always crucial delivers. . Before ordering memory for personal use, please make sure you are ordering the right type for your machine. Make sure to open up the computer (desktops), and look up the motherboard inside your computer for the types of memory is needed. Don't always trust the manufacturers recommendations. I have seen quite a few pre-built computers give the wrong information as to what type of memory they can handle. Many of the bad reviews you read on products like this one are not the fault of the product or the seller. It simply is a case of ordering the wrong type of memory (wrong pin count, speed, ect). . If there is ever a need to make sure you are getting great product with even better performance, order crucial! -Notice from S. Harrison, Bournemouth

When i ordered 2 packs of this memory (two separate orders of 2 stick combo packs). I received 4gb low density ddr3 memory made in america that worked in the pc's i wanted them to. . When i needed one more stick, i ordered a single pack, . And received a 4gb high density ddr3l made in china stick, that did not work in the pc i intended it to. It did work fine in a different pc, so i kept it. . The one pc that was able to use the hd ddr3l stick actually runs better on it than it did on one of the ld ddr3 made in usa sticks (from the two packs), . So it's a happy ending lol. (this same review is posted on both the pages for the 4gbx2 packs and the single 4gb stick that i bought since changing to a single stick option in the 4gbx2 page originally brought me here)

- K. SarahI bought this a year and a half ago to upgrade my laptop to 8 gigs of ram. Even though i was coming from 6gbs, the performance boost was noticeable. What once was a crashed browser, now has more tabs open than ever, and keeps chugging along. I also installed a 500gb ssd, and the performance of the machine is so much better than it was, i will have to wait a long time before considering an upgrade. Crucial has always made a reliable product, and their memory is always top notch. If you have room for this in your machine, it's absolutely worth the upgrade.

Perfect for what it is. Bought to upgrade the ram on a samsung series 5 ultrabook. Boosted the ram from factory 4gb to 8gb and noticed performance improvement immediately. Be sure that the ram speed matches the specifications for your computer before ordering. 1600 was the speed my manufacturer specified.

Crucial 8GB Single DDR3/DDR3L 1600 MT/S PC3-12800 Unbuffered SODIMM 204-Pin Memory - CT102464BF160B

Used in asus n56vj with sandisk ssd as the main drive and the factory hard drive as a secondary (replacing the dvd). The laptop performs well mostly used to run vms and other simulators. It was immediately recognized by the computer. A single adjustment in msconfig was needed in order to make the full amount of memory usable. Great solid product. Did not notice any performance improvement over the factory ram, but definitely was needed to make sure i can run more operations at one time.

In short, 204-pin small outline dual inline memory modules (sodimms) are the form factor used to provide ddr3 memory modules for notebook computers and other small form factor computing platforms. 204-pin sodimms are currently available in pc3-8500 (ddr3 1066mhz) and pc3-10600 (ddr3 1333mhz) speeds.

Crucial Single Pc3 12800 Unbuffered 204 Pin (ct102464bf160b) FAQ.

I installed this in my wife's macbook pro (mid 2012; non-retina; macbookpro 9, 2) . Very easy upgrade. No issues. Memory instantaneously recognized, no need for 'option command r p'. At the same time, i upgraded the hdd to samsung 850 evo 500gb ( with these 2 upgrades (and a fresh os x 10. 10 install) the computer is better than the day we bought it. Very highly recommended for mac users. Another note: even though apple claims 8gb being maximum amount of memory for this mac, it can actually take 16 gb. I entertained that idea for a moment, but at this point 16 gb is a bit pricey. Very happy with the upgrade. -Notice from N. Nielsen, Waltham Forest

Hp envy 15. 6" widescreen with touchsmart and beats audio. It came with 8gb ram. I bought it for my degree in graphic design. Needed to run the adobe creative cloud programs. It did, for a while. Then it started lagging. I bought that laptop specifically because it's upgradable to 16gb ram. The research i did brought me to this 16gb kit. I've had it in my laptop for about 15 months now and haven't had a problem. I loved how lightening fast my laptop is. Still is. Crucial is an excellent brand. I haven't needed to contact anyone to report anything. Nothing was broken or lagging. Just fantastic. Looking to upgrade? go for it. You won't regret it.

- L. WatsonI have an old asus k52f i5 with windows 10 pro, came with 4gb ram but i'd just put in an ssd so figured doubling the ram for $50 would bring it well up to spec. The install was easy:. . - unscrew 5 screws on the base with a little phillips head screwdriver. - take the cover plate out, that needs a little force as it is tightly secured. - pull back the top ram guides so the existing 2gb chip pops up, then pull that out. - repeat for the lower 2gb chip. - insert the new 4gb chip, needs a little force and the space is tight but they are robust so you would be doing really bad things to break them. - put the guides back. - repeat with the top 4gb chip. - turn laptop on and check it boots and works and that you have 8gb installed. . Yes? . - place cover plate back, needs a little finessing to get all the latches in place. - screw the screws back in. - enjoy your extra working ram. . No? . - oops, that didn't happen to me but i'd check the chip seating, that's the likely cause. - try putting the old 2gb chips back in and check they still work. - if that fails, sorry you are on your own, take it to the local pc shop :-)

I purchased the crucial ct2k8g3s160bm 2x8gb to increase the memory in my lenovo y410p laptop from 8-gb to 16-gb. My y410p has two memory slots, and one slot was already occupied by a factory-installed samsung m471b1g73qh0-yk0 8-gb memory card. I probably could have just added another 8-gb card. But to avoid any possible memory glitches, i prefer not to mix-and-match memory cards of different types. The existing samsung memory was pc3l/ddr3l, with the 'l' signifying that it is low-voltage 1. 35v memory, whereas the standard pc3/ddr3 memory uses a higher voltage of 1. 50v. You should not combine memory of different voltages or use memory with incorrect voltage since your laptop may not even boot up. To further maximize compatibility with my laptop, since it came equipped with cl11 1600-mhz memory, i likewise wanted to stick with cl11 cas latency speed, instead of going for memory with a faster (lower) cl rating. Some cl9 memory cards have faster specifications, but i really think that most people will not notice 2-nanoseconds of extra latency. So i ordered this cl11 1600-mhz memory because i wanted to exactly match the specifications of my laptop's original 8-gb memory card to ensure compatibility since using mismatched memory can cause system instability. And this memory has been working flawlessly in my laptop! . . In real-world applications benchmarks, there is barely any difference between using cl11 memory and using some fancier cl9 memory, and the unnoticeable speed difference is not worth paying extra money for more-expensive models of cl9 or faster memory. With most applications, if you compare cl7, cl9, and cl11 application benchmarks, the differences mostly amount to 2% to 4% differences in benchmark timings. Along with the cl listing, another important memory performance indicator is bandwidth, and this crucial memory's ddr3 1600mhz has a very good maximum bandwidth of 12800mb/s. But what does this mean in real-world performance terms? relatively little. As long as you have enough memory to hold the applications that you are running without paging, ram speed is only very rarely a performance bottleneck. Even with quad-core cpus, the bottleneck is more likely still going to be the cpu . The reason for this is that the cpu's branch prediction algorithms are so accurate that, in the vast majority of circumstances, the data is already in the cache when the cpu needs it. So direct calls to ram are quite rare. The branch predictor is like the cpu's personal assistant; it guesses what piece of information the boss needs next and makes sure it is already on his desk by the time he needs it. Occasionally, the assistant will get it wrong and the boss will have to forage around and find the information himself. In cpu terms, "foraging around" means retrieving the information from ram, or (worst case scenario) disk, while if it is "on the boss' desk", that is equivalent to it being in the cpu's cache. And if your computer is equipped with an ssd using intel's "smart response technology" or if your computer uses ssds instead of hard disks, it may retrieve the data from the speedy ssd instead of reading from a slower hard disk. . So the days are long-gone when purchasing high-end expensive ram actually makes a tangible difference to your computer's performance. As long as it meets the basic specifications that your chipset requires, there is not much to be gained by paying more. Some performance gains are possible from buying better ram, but these days, most tests tend to show that such performance gains are minimal. Far, far lower than you will get from adding more ram (not necessarily faster ram, just *more* ram) or a faster cpu. This was not always the case. When the pentium iv first came out thirteen years ago, it used a new type of ram that had, at the time, very high bandwidth, but also very high latency. Amd's athlon used traditional ram with lower bandwidth and lower latency. Some types of applications (e. G. Video and audio conversion) were very sensitive to bandwidth, but less sensitive to latency. These types of applications showed significant performance gains with the pentium iv. Other applications (typically games and office applications) were more sensitive to latency and favored the athlon. . Overall, this crucial memory is a great buy! don't overspend on memory just because a brand or model of memory touts better specifications. If you are a hardcore computer gamer with a $4000 gaming laptop, you may opt for faster high-end memory to complement your top-of-the-line cpu and graphics. But most people should focus far more on how compatible that memory's specifications are for your system because the differences between cl ratings are negligible if you are considering cl rating differences of 2 or 3, while using memory that is not correctly matched or compatible with your computer can cause a variety of problems. . After i removed the original samsung 8-gb memory from my y410p laptop and added these two crucial sodimm cards, i reran the windows experience index benchmark and got the same wei "memory operations per second" score of 8. 1 that i had with the samsung memory. The wei "processor: calculations per second" also remained unchanged at 8. 1. This was not surprising considering that both the original samsung memory and this crucial memory have the same specifications. . I also purchased a single 8gb card of this same crucial memory to upgrade my hp chromebox, which comes equipped with only 2gb in its single memory slot. There is a lot of misleading information on the internet stating the maximum memory that you can use in the hp chromebox is 4gb. But that is incorrect since the hp chromebox can fully use 8gb of memory. After i upgraded my hp chromebox, the memory monitor app on its chrome os displayed the memory capacity as 7. 9gb. 2gb of memory is sufficient for a chromebook/chromebox if you are just browsing with a few tabs open. But if you want to open up lots of tabs and run lots of apps, or if you plan to install linux or windows on your chromebook/chromebox, then adding more memory will help with performance. . Note that crucial has two identical 16-gb 2x8gb kits with identical specifications, with each memory product having two different part numbers: ct2k8g3s160bm/ct2c8g3s160bm crucial 16gb kit (8gbx2) ddr3 1600 mhz (pc3-12800) cl11 sodimm 204-pin 1. 35v/1. 5v mac memory ct2k8g3s160bm , and ct2kit102464bf160b/ct2cp102464bf160b crucial 16gb kit (8gbx2) ddr3 1600 mt/s (pc3-12800) cl11 sodimm 204-pin 1. 35v/1. 5v notebook memory ct2kit102464bf160b. Ct2k8g3s160bm/ct2c8g3s160bm and ct2kit102464bf160b/ct2cp102464bf160b are exactly the same memory cards, with the only difference being that the ct2k8g3s160bm/ct2c8g3s160bm product is packaged for macs with the words "mac compatible" on the package. But all four of these part numbers are totally interchangeable because they contain identical memory cards. So if you determine that this is the right memory for your computer, just get whichever of these four crucial part numbers is cheapest :-) i purchased the ct2k8g3s160bm/ct2c8g3s160bm on online store because it was $30 cheaper than the ct2kit102464bf160b/ct2cp102464bf160b product listing at the time (of course, prices can vary each day). Both of these products are dual-voltage and can work in either 1. 35v pc3l/ddr3l or 1. 50v pc3/ddr3 memory slots. Both products are mac-compatible, but they are also not mac-specific or pc-specific, and they work equally well with pcs, macs, and chromebook/chromebox. . . . If you have questions, please ask.

Bought this to use as an untangle utm firewall. Added 8gb ram and a 120gb ssd and for less than $250 (half the price untangle will sell you their appliance for) and have a full wire-speed utm firewall protecting my kids from themselves. (have to make sure you set usb to legacy to be able to boot from a usb image) incredibly fast, versitile little box for very little money. (i did put some 1/2 thick feet on the corners to lift it up a little for additional airflow. )

A number of questions have been asked here.

Q&A

(0) Question: Esata port supports port multiplier?


(1) Question: Are the dual 10/1000m gigabit ports intel? and are they detected by pfsense


(2) Question: Any issues running windows server 2012 r2 essentials on it?


(3) Question: What is the max memory you can install on it and does the hard drive go inside or external only?


(4) Question: I want to power this from 12v battery bank. (solar) what is the output of power supply and what is current and w use under idle/load?


(5) Question: Specs state it's sata but not the speed. even the zotac site don't list this. does anyone know?


(6) Question: Specific to the n2930 model, anyone using it with a single so-dimm of 8gb ram? or does it require 2x4gb to have the max of 8gb?


(7) Question: How does linux perform on this machine, specifically ubuntu gnome with 8 gigs of ram and a ssd?


(8) Question: Can i install a sata 2. 5" 1tb hard drive instead of a ssd one ?


(9) Question: Just got mine. when i touch the ssd drive it's very warm. almost hot. when i put a usb key in, it gets very warm too. does yours do that too?

Please do not attempt to use this for pfsense. It is known to just "hang/freeze" without explanation. All the tweaking in the bios and pfsense itself has not cured it. I'm moving to another box or virtualizing the firewall. This thing seemed great to replace the desktop that was running it (for 2 years straight without fail) but it has been nothing but a nightmare. . -. Update. A week later i took ian's advice in a comment below and swapped ram. It is now working and up and seems good so far. What i will say though is pfsense is still a risky bet only because of the realtek drivers now present in freebsd. Particularly it has a problem with timing out (watchdog) which ceases all function on one or both nics. The solution is to upload a kernel module that comes into play when it notices realtek drivers (ie. Add to /boot/loader. Conf a line that specifies if it's realtek then use the kernel module you uploaded. ) i am using the 1. 88 driver and it is fine (though performance is probably not full gigabit if you believe tests people have done. ) if this is all greek to you, i'd recommend going with another box with intel nics if you'll be using pfsense or even the new sg1000 from pfsense themselves. It'll just work. Otherwise this now seems to be performing admirably.

My adorable little xenserver. I just wish it had 1 more nic. (because xen is a big fat meanie about its management interface. ). . Will take 16 gigs of ram. (strangely intel only lists it being able to handle 8. ). Has virt on the cpu. Has more than enough cpu power for multiple low end servers. Is adorable and makes no noise (unless you put a spinner in it). . I am going to paint a little face on it and call it saabaa chan.

This little box is perfect for use as a firewall, especially for the price! i am running pfsense with 4gb of ram and this thing constantly sits at 1% cpu usage with no features enabled and roughly 3-5% with ipsec and snort running. This is the box to get!

Smaller than expected. Fast enough for web surfing, watching youtube, no gaming. Price is fair. Solid product. I added a stick of 4gb ram, 128gb ssd, windows 7 x86, a nice little pc for my 11-year-old son. Still there is room for improvement. Why not having an usb 3. 0 port in the front? . Due to the small size, the 2. 5 drive once installed will completely block the pca from the ventilation, the unit runs warmer (on the hot side) than expected. I work around by removing the ssd housing, revealing the actual electronic board of the ssd, which is about 1/2 of the full size, and much thinner, that leave more room for the heat to escape. There are some ssd with the pca board size is about 1/3 of the housing. Putting the unit vertically on a surface also help it to run cooler. Using the msata or m. 2 in place of the sata in the next version of the ci320 will be much welcomed. In all, i'm happy with the unit.

This is a great device for learning or testing. I first install windows server 2012 and hyper-v but it didn t work. Later i tried with vmware esx free and something failed. After that i installed ubuntu with kvm virtual machine support and it worked like a charm. I now have 3 virtual machines running with 8gb . The sophos firewall and utm run fine as guest to kvm. I also run windows server 2008 as guest in kvm. You can also install docker and install several containers at the same time.

Use it for a pfsense router. Works awesome and have had months of uptime with plenty of extra speed. Routing performance is great and can easily handle my 400 mbps connection. Have used squid a lot for caching just to test out. Ipsec vpn for remote work. All awesome and plenty of cpu left over. Installed a 120 gb ssd for the main drive. Overkill but great to have just in case. Http://amzn. To/1u1iekc

F. Anonymous, Walsall says

I'm using this as a sophos utm firewall, and it's working great. It does not install using the default options though. After some searching and trial-and-error, i found that "default acpi off clocksource tsc" makes it work perfectly, with all four cpu cores enabled, and with the internal clock running at the correct speed. (without "clocksource tsc", time was running too fast, and every time it synced with an external ntp source, the firewall would restart and drop connections for about 5 minutes. ). . I haven't had any issues with the realtek nics, but my internet connection is only 30mbps, so i can't really stress them at all. (in many linux-based firewall situations, intel nics are considered the gold standard. This box has realtek nics which are generally regarded as inferior. )

Z. Guest, Lancashire

Current pfsense has issues with the memory card ready, creates about 30-50 second longer boot time as it loops through trying to figure out wtf it is. I'm sure someone could sideload some drivers to make it better but i ended up just making it a webserver instead of my fw. I replaced a i3 large dell with this low power solution and its rock solid. . Fyi - for ubuntu /debian you will get the dreaded intel blackscreen issue unless you install a gui. I went with xfce because its stupid light and fine for me. . It runs fine in my closet running in the around 80 degree environment.

Y. Smith, North Yorkshire says

I recently purchased both a zotac ci320 and a asrock beebox 3150. I posted a comparison review of the beebox on newegg, so thought i'd post here as well for the zotac (where i purchased it). . -. . So i bought the beebox because i wanted to compare it to a recent zotac ci320 build that i had done. They are very similar units. The beebox has a slightly newer processor (n3150) vs. The zotac's (n2930) - but i really couldn't tell a difference in performance. Both played 1080p picture on my big screen just fine. . Both have good build quality, but i think i like the zotac a bit more. Definitely like the greater of usb ports on the zotac. The beebox has a fan inside, but other than at the initial startup, you'd never really know it. It's very quiet - although the zotac is completely quiet (no fan). The plan is to use the beebox as a media player for hd tv (with wmc and emby) and it works fine for that. I don't currently use 4k for anything, but wanted to have that option if i went that way in the future. . The big problem with the beebox is the built in wi-fi. The signal is ok for range, but there must be a driver problem (and i've updated to the latest as far as i can tell from their website). But even with a decent signal, there is a bit of video stutter every 20-30 seconds when streaming video. It's enough that it's annoying to anyone wanting great hd quality from streaming, and it's enough to make me give this only 3 stars (i'd give the zotac 4). I currently disabled the built in wi-fi ac, and instead plugged in an external usb 3. 0 wi-fi n adapter, and that eliminated the stutter (so i know the problem is in the built-in wifi adapter on the unit). I've read online that many people are finding similar wi-fi issues with the beebox. (come on asrock, get a working driver out there that fixes this! ). The built in wifi also seems to cause interference with any wireless keyboards plugged into the usb ports. If you have problems with that, you need to extend the usb adapter for the wireless keyboard on an extention cable away from the beebox (and also the front usb seemed to have less problems for me). I had no wi-fi issues with the zotac ci320 at all - great signal and range. . I wanted to try the beebox vs. Another zotac (zotac also has a new unit that also has the n3150 cpu). The beebox would be fine if the wi-fi issue was resolved. But because of that one issue, i would recommend the zotac a bit above the beebox. . Both units were difficult to install win 7 (with wmc) on - but that was something i new would take some effort- because of win 7s lack of usb 3. 0 native support. So if you're installing win7, be aware you have to jump through a few hoops (search online, lots of help available on how to do get it done). . Price was similar, but the beebox (after rebate) was a bit less (say 20%) expensive- both good values. . I've had the zotac since september, and just got the beebox, so long term durability is still unknown. . Hope this helps someone that might be looking at both these units.

Bought to use as pfsense router. For home use, a small ssd and 4gb crucial memory have been a great match. The aes-ni chip was also very important since i'm now running openvpn at the router level. Great speeds with the hardware encryption turned on. Haven't had any issues with realtek nics on the most recent version of the software, very stable connection even with my asus router used as wifi access point for about 20 clients. Well worth the cash, and with the aes-ni chip and 2 nics, possibly the best deal going for basic pfsense mini pcs right now.

I bought the bare bones version and bought an 8gb ram card and a 120gb ssd drive. The case is well designed such that you remove four screws (thumb screws, no tool required) and the cover comes off and you are looking right at the slots for the memory card and sata hdd. You don't need a sata cable, because the drive snaps right into a socket. Install the cards and put the cover back on and you are done. I put the ubuntu 16 installer and prepared a usb drive with lilux and loaded the os as per its instructions. There were no difficulties and an os was up and running in under 30 minutes. The ubuntu ui (unity) runs well and is very responsive. . I am sure it would run windows 10 fine, but that wasn't in the plan for my requirements. Of course, whatever os you want to run you will need the ability to install via a usb drive and not cd/dvd (because it doesn't have one). . It runs quiet since it is fanless and i chose a disk that has no moving parts. The entire case is vented well so i don't expect any heat issues as i will be running it in a climate controlled space. . I bought this to replace a pfsense firewall that i have running on an old dell desktop which is loud and takes up a lot more space and electrical power than is needed for a firewall. Because this device has a lot of compute power, beyond what is needed for pfsense, i am installing vmware esx 6, and carving out 3 vms - one vcpu vm for pfsense, and two vms with 2 vcpus running windows 10. . This device runs esx 6, but is not certified on the hcl and therefore not supported. Installing esx 6 is tricky and involves jumping through some hoops. I tried many things, but in the only thing that worked for me was the process outlined in this blog: . . . Once esx 6 is installed, it runs fine. . Update: dec 4, 2016 - i wanted to circle back to this review and add that i ended up removing esx 6 and running pfsense on this box only. I was running esx 6, and on top of that 2 vm's with one running pfsense and the other a win 10 vm for my video surveillance system. Things were fine until i upgraded my internet speed to 200mbps (from 60), and found i was not able to get anywhere near 200mbps. It averaged around 75mbps and sometimes peaked as high as 170, but it was not running as fast as it should and was not consistent. . Even with the win 10 vm powered off, throughput was the same. After a lot of troubleshooting and checking settings in esx, and finding no good reason for the low throughput, i decided to scrap esx and install pfsense as the only thing on the box, and now i get my 200mbps consistently. . In hindsight, this box is not on the list of hardware certified by vmware and specifically the realtek lan interfaces are not only not supported, but not even in the esx build and are disabled. To get esx installed you have to make (or obtain) a custom esx kernel with the realtek driver in the kernel. Therefore it comes as no surprise that eventually, i found problems in this area. . The box of course works well as a pfsense appliance.

Excellent product well worth its price. It has a sturdy construction although it is a bit on the heavy side. It does not overheat under typical use conditions. Its power supply is excellent quality (clean dc with very little electrical noise and steady voltage and current). The product performs well with its snappy yet low consumption cpu. After installing it with 4gb of dram and a 128gb ssd it was extensively tested with windows 10, linux and pfsense (it eventually became a pfsense network gateway/firewall with many cpu hungry options activated). All parts of it worked well with all operating systems tested, except for its built-in wifi which turned out to be unsupported by bsd/pfsense. (it's probably a matter of time to get it working with bsd but it can easily be replaced with a $12 compatible aftermarket version. The original wifi built-in works well with windows and linux). Definitely a good purchase.

I love the form factor and the low power. I've got this mounted to the wall in a closet so it hardly takes any space. Using a killowatt meter, i measured 11 watts from the wall. A nice surprise is that it will use 16gb of ram even though zotac says 8gb is the max. I used patriot viper pc3-12800 1600mhz ram. . Update: december 29, 2017. . I am updating this review to report that the power brick supplied by zotac is not able to maintain a good connection. I have to twist the barrel connector until the front led lights and then be careful not to touch it again to avoid having a momentary loss of power. . Update: february 15, 2018. . Zotac support says this product has a 2 year warranty. It have owned this for 18 months, so i'm covered. I filed an rma request today.

I will update this if support can assist in getting this working. . Update; their support had me use their provided iso to usb booting tool. Once i did this win10 was recognized (even though the tool says it's for win7). Very strange that i would need a custom zotac bootable iso app versus just using dd on mac terminal. My usb bootable thumb drives booted just fine on other computers. I'm removing 1 star because this should be provided and explained on their website without having to contact support. Other than this, it has been an awesome little machine for tanscoding 1080p plex streams to chromecast as well as handling torrent downloads. . So far i can't get it to boot to an os installation usb drive. . I have updated the firmware to the latest available on zotac's website (a version dated march 2017) and still i am not able to boot to any of my tested win10 bootable usb thumb drives that work on other computers. Like all the directions, i set uefi to legacy. (some people mentioned an operating system selection but my bios does not have this or i could not find it). I reboot and hit f8 to select my bootable usb drives and neither of them are recognizing. (win10 and wint7 iso written to usb using dd utility on osx). . Doesn't work for me! . . I have reached out to support and i will update this based on their feedback. This is very unfortunate, i consider myself well versed in this stuff and i've wasted nearly an entire day trying to get this working. Very frustrating.
